New Book

This is the cover of the book I've recently finished illustrating -- 'Dog Did It!' It's written by Lynne Garner and published by Piccadilly Press.
It concerns a small troll called Boris who loves green worm soup rather more than he should do, because it has disastrous effects on his digestive system. Boris continually blames Dog for the inevitable smelly emissions, until Dog manages to get his own back. So, all the big themes of literature are covered... friendship, betrayal and farting.
I was quite pleased with the hairy finish I managed to give the trolls. Last I heard it should be in the shops early 2011.

  1. This looks like a really beautiful book Mike, despite the very regrettable content, which could totally warp ickle chubbies.

    Mind you not quite as deleterious to their developing brains as exposure to the wonderful Ren and Stimpy Christmas story, titled as I recall, "The Ghost of Stimpy's Wet Fart".

    Things could be worse.
